"A weekend with William Shakespeare"
Over 400 years since his death, he continues to touch our lives in more ways than we can imagine.
The art we love, the poetry we recite and the cinema we identify with just wouldn't be what they are without the Bard of Avon, William Shakespeare, inarguably one of the world's greatest playwrights (Yes, this applies to masala Hindi cinema as well and to countless creative narratives the world over. You'd be surprised to know just how many stories are his.)
It would be no exaggeration, therefore, to argue that modern storytelling owes its existence to the man. For example, the way in which Shakespeare’s plots move forward has helped define modern play-writing. Similarly, Shakespeare’s complex characterizations have brought forth a new type of storytelling in which characters’ choices drive plots forward. As a result, journeys in his plays are dynamic and his characters undergo a significant amount of change.
In addition, Shakespeare is also credited as having invented genres that mixed both tragedy and comedy. His genre-bending work contributed to brand-new experiences of both storytelling and theater.
In a two day workshop, Living Bridge and its mentor Kalyani Sardesai are all set to explore in simple, contemporary language as to how and why Shakespeare continues to be significantly significant-no matter who came before or after him.
